We were late getting our famous - infamous - Christmas/Holiday card started this year, so we went ahead and decided to make it a New Year's card instead. (As it turned out, we weren't as late as we thought, and most recipients got theirs before Christmas anyway. Whatever....) Since we bought a house this year, we decided to go with a "new home" theme. And what better home-y source material than a photograph of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh lounging about Windsor Castle? Thankfully, there were no Corgis cluttering up the composition, giving us a perfect spot to insert our dear Nicholas.

Thank you to everyone who "tunes in" to this blog. I so enjoy working at it, spending far too much time scouring up pictures, finding new stories to tell. And I so appreciate your attention and your kind and very smart comments. Here's to a happy and productive and prosperous new year, all of us!
